emerging now this weekend about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of what officials believe was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. and of course so many questions about where this goes from here. joining me now for the latest on this developing story, the "washington post's" bob woodward and our own chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell who broke the story as i mentioned on friday. so andrea, here we are on sunday morning, new details. we know there was someone close to petraeus who got threatening e-mails. a whistleblower. she goes to the fbi. and that's how they get to the affair. >> this other woman, and we know she's not in the government and that she's not a family member, complained to the fbi about what she felt were harass k and threatening e-mails. it was that investigation that led -- they were anonymous e-mails. that led to broadwell's e-mail account. and by examining broadwell's, paula broadwell the biographer's e-mail account that's they uncovered or stumbled as they put it into this -- >> there were actual
, thank you. >>> and now to the timeline. when this fbi investigation began, and new questions tonight about why the white house and congress did not hear of it until much later. here's abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas tonight. >> reporter: sources tell abc news jill kelly considered those harassing e-mails a threat not only to herself, but petraeus. after the fbi was contacted, and an investigation uncovered a sordid affair between petraeus and paula broadwell, there were early concerns that the cia director's secure government e-mails could have been hacked. but the probe never turned up evidence of national security being compromised. what it did find, as one source put it, was lots of human drama. key members of congress want to know why didn't they weren't told. >> we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. >> reporter: top intelligence officials were not informed until election day. the president was told the day after. >> the president should have been told about it at the earliest date. >> reporter: but a former fbi agent said the bureau follow
who triggered the fbi petraeus probe revealed. we're getting new information about who this veteran agent is and how he got involved. and a storm victim struggling to stay warm with no power for weeks gets a personal visit from the president of the united states. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we've got breaking news. we're getting new information about what then-cia director david petraeus knew about the benghazi attack and when he knew it. let's get right to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> wolf, i have just spoken to someone, a long-standing source who has spoken to david petraeus. this is someone on his level professionally. this person is directly familiar from petraeus with his thinking, with petraeus' thinking about what he will tell congress tomorrow about the benghazi attacks. david petraeus wants to tell congress that he knew almost immediately after the september 11th attacks that the group ansar al sharia, that al qaeda sympathizing
and law enforcement, certainly the fbi to get the enormous amounts of fairly sensitive information about our private online activities, a lot of it without a court order. it looks like in this case it probably did get a warrant, but it also shows the incredible threat to them. we are talking about something that started as a cyber harassment investigation that led to the exposure of thousands of e-mails between broadwell and patreus over a period of years. we now have these archives of all of our communications, which compared to something like a wiretap can reveal vast more information. host: what is needed from a federal perspective to get access to the e-mails? guest: some courts have imposed tighter requirements. federal law says under certain circumstances it can be done with just a subpoena. they do not need to show probable cause of the search her home or tap your phone. only to certify that material that they are looking for is relevant. host: there is something called the electronic communications privacy act. guest: that is the 1986 federal law that provides the framework for c
response approach being have allowed the f.b.i. to acess the site sooner than the 24 days it would eventually take. but the most senior people of government worked on it. secretary of defense chairman of the joint cheats and secretary of state and senator john mccain looks at this and said clearly the administration acted this way to hide something. >> this is a classic scandal where almost every day and another shoe drops. i think it could be bad as water gate and one of our veterans said no one died in water gate. they have a point. >> yesterday white house press secretary jay carny said the president is anticipating the results of the f.b.i.'s investigation. back to you. >> gretchen: just to carry this story further. we saw the spokesperson for the state department said that the highest level of people were involved in this. i am not so sure that is a good admission to make. if the highest people were involved including the secretary of state and secretary of defense and possibly the vice-president and president, and all of this happened on their watch. i am not sure it is good
could have helped the fbi gain access to the site in benghazi faster than the 24 days it needed. they say the team would not have done any good. a spokesman gave this explanation. quote the most senior people in government worked on this issue from the moment it happened, that includes the secretary of defense. chairman of the joint chief, secretary of state, national security adviser, et cetera. fox news has learned that u.s. military intelligence was reporting as early as 7:00pm eastern, less than four hours after the attack began that ansar al-sharia carried out the i attack on the consulate. state department cables show that stevens team warned washington that at 6:43 in the morning they had concerns on september 11th that members of the libyan police sent to guard them were photographing the compound, quote, this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission and furthermore this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission from the ministry of foreign affairs. u.s. intelligence officials tell fox that three hours before the attack on the
of the homeland security committee has questions. >> it just doesn't add up that the f.b.i. would be carrying on this type of investigation without bringing it to the president or the highest levels of the white house. >> it doesn't seem to be partisan. senator dianne feinstein in charge of the senate intelligence committee is curious why she found out something like this from media irinquiries and because it could affect national security, pertinent lawmakers should have known in advance. a woman named jane kelly was being harassed by email and brought them into the f.b.i. office. they looked into the emails and found a relationship between broadwell and petraeus. no breach of national security, even though petraeus was advised to resign. we'll be back with more after the break. crazy monday. we'll see you on the other side. ♪ stay tuned for the answer.

that killed four americans the fbi is getting access to the seoul suspect in custody. he is currently being held in tunisia. he was arrested in the days after the attack but it wasn't until lindsay graham and company and the next guest put pressure on the authorities in tunisia. it didn't go to the crime scene the murder scene for a week. >> joining us right now is the senator. >> senator you got access. there is even some conditions on the access isn't there? >> the important thing is we do have access to the individual. there are individuals they are placed on interrogations by the host country. the thing is we face to face access for this guy. this started not long after i left you last week in new york. i went after the fbi in charge of this investigation. these very professional men and women who do a good job every single day investigating crimes were really frustrated. i could tell that because they were being asked to operate with one hand behind their back. we knew this guy was in custody yet nobody was doing anything to get the face to face interrogation with them. so it was a mat
petraeus or is that totally irrelevant? we don't know yet. >> john: that's how the fbi got gotti. do you think that if that were the case, if that attack was motivated because there was a secret c.i.a. black sight prison somewhere in the consulate this is what the c.i.a.'s director's girlfriend was saying in a speech. when fox news and information clearing house are agreeing on something, i'm disturbed in general. or inspired. but if that's the case, is that a scandal so huge that the media won't even touch it? >> i think the media will touch it. the media is digging on it. i know certainly our michael hastings is look at it. i'm sure national security report from every news outlet is digging because that would be the finish in some ways, the story of the century. you're tapping into the major pop culture moment and the return to -- and sort of a massive national security breakthrough. i mean everybody wants that story if they can get it. the question is could they get it. we're talking about that that's going
of the timing of all of this? >> i don't see anything untoward about this. i think the fbi investigated as quickly as they could. i think as soon as they found something out, they talked to him. there was a bit of a delay in notifying the president. but that's something else altogether. you were asking about gen ben ghazi, do you want to talk benghazi? >> yeah. >> you've been on the ground. you know, you know what it's like to be on the ground when your intelligence is no good, i think from a military standpoint, i don't think it made any sense whatsoever to send a quick reaction force, which would neither be quick, nor would it necessarily be able to react to what was on the ground. by that time, anyway, ambassador stevens was dead. >> let's talk about from a personal standpoint. i know that you have known david petraeus and his wife, holly, for about the same length of time that they've known each other. tell me their story. >> david petraeus was a cadet at west point from '71-'75. i taught there from '73-'76. so we overlapped. holly petraeus, met him there. and why? because her fathe
. the u.s. has been given access to the suspect on the deadly attack on our consulate in libya. the fbi will be allowed to question the islamic militant that was detained in tunisia. not clear what role he played in the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others in benghazi. >>> more have been diagnosed with meningitis. there's 18 reported cases, bringing the total to 404. in 29 states, 19 people have died. people many are suffering from a second illness, an infection in the spine where the drug was injected. >>> and more documents from the watergate tapes could be released soon. a federal judge ruled that the materials related to the 1972 break-in at the democratic national committee headquarters in washington, d.c. must be unsealed within a month. a texas pastor has requested the documents which he says could explain the motivation behind the break-in. the watergate scandal, of course, ultimately forced president nixon to resign. >>> we know how much you love cute animals. dan, this is an alert for you. have to share this one with you. look at this. this is a rare wh
one ounce of marijuana. it doesn't happen. anybody knows that the fed, the fbi, they are not doing street busts, corner bursts. this would have to go into effect by the distributors. so what's going to happen is they will try to set up distribution program then the federal government will take whatever actions they are going to take. but here's the rub. this is already going on in california with medical marijuana. there is no provision in the federal law for medical marijuana. they are allowing california and the state government to distribute medical marijuana. holder wrote a letter saying we'll strongly oppose this and prosecute this. they have done nothing. my answer to you, your honor is let's look at past behavior to predict future behavior. megyn: how can they do it? >> how can the feds do it? megyn: how can colorado thumb its nose? >> you are italian, you know. megyn: i think the thumb changes everything. you don't know what i'm trying to say. sorry. jonna, how can colorado pass a law like this when you have got a federal law that says pot is illegal? >> they are running a
reports that the fbi is reporting an investigation after hearing that a number of people heard letters from fannie mae that they were ineligible to vote. host: scott, good morning. caller: thank you for c-span. i did not watch c-span until i came across one of your programs during this election and i have been stopped since. i cannot stand to watch fox or msnbc. c-span appears to be one of the only channels that gives a fair and proportionate opinion, a chance for both parties to say their peace. i appreciate the opportunity for me to give mine. thomas jefferson called the electoral college and outdated form. i believe that every vote should count. on the other hand, you would not want texas, california, or new york to determine what the whole country should move forward on. i believe that the electoral college is outdated. i am an independent voter. i voted for clinton back in the day, and i have voted for bush. i voted for obama last time. i am from ohio, but not everyone from ohio is in the unions. there are a lot people out of work here. i am really upset with the fact that mitt ro
to the polls. all weekend, we awe the voters waiting up to eight hours to cast an early ballot. the fbi is investigating after dozens of voters went out to voters, mainly republicans, questioning their eligibility to vote. also in the swing states of ohio and wisconsin we've got tensions brewing over some billboards that went alleging voter fraud. and now reports of phony phone calls. these are new reports that just came out over the evening. and other swing state phone calls that went out predominantly african-american voters, giving them fake information about the polls. a lot of this could extend past election day. >> and hurricane sandy, josh. >> yes, election officials in the storm zones making sure that the voters displaced by the hurricane are able to cast their ballots today. portable polling booths have been set up inside tents. shuttle buses carrying voters to alternate sites. and people in the hardest-hit areas are being allowed to vote at any polling location in their state. some people in new jersey can also vote by e-mail. although, they have to send in a paper ballot as a
the work of the imdwration service. >> you were turning finger prints over to the f.b.i. >> we worked with ice and turned over people when they were arrested. that is the responsibility of the federal government. we can't put that on the towns anywhere in this country. >> you can have the last word on this topic. >> there are three or four different issues. the original question was about rhode island and the drain on the resources. i've looked at that and the drain on the resources is pretty minimal because the number of undock meanted here who utilize the resources this gentleman is talking about is small, only in the dozens. so i'm not going to worry about the drain in rhode island because the numbers don't bear that out. >> what do they contribute to the economy? >> a lot of them have jobs. just because their undock meanted doesn't mean they don't work. i have a good friend who i won't name who is self-plode. he employees several americans and makes well over 100,000 a year but i have no problem with that sort of thing. i have no problem with the idea just because you're undock me
